'Public interest in South Africa: In Light of the Recent Burger King Decision' in partnership with Fasken

Competition regulation in Africa, particularly South Africa, places emphasis on public interest issues such as employment and the promotion of small businesses.  South Africa has led the way in promoting public interest, and businesses need to understand the approach of the authorities, particularly with respect to M&A transactions, in this regard.  The topic is particularly relevant given that the Competition Commission recently prohibited a merger involving Burger King SA, despite the fact that it raised no competition concerns, because of the significant reduction in black shareholding that would ensue.  

Join us as we unpack these provisions and the implications for companies doing business in South Africa & Africa.
